in Guimarães, a city of Portugal, and will be broadcast to the entire World on July 6, 7, and 8 of 2022.
Hotel de Guimarães
In the center of the city of Guimarães, the Hotel de Guimarães combines an atmosphere of modernity and excellence, in a harmonious response to the needs of comfort and well-being of customers. The interior design and comfort of the rooms are combined with the natural charm of the Victorian landscape.
Guimarães is considered the birthplace of Portugal because Afonso Henriques, who went on to be the first king of Portugal, was born here.
The historical center in the area that was within the Guimarães city walls, is associated with the formation and identity of Portugal and was classified a World Heritage site based on the originality and authenticity applied in its restoration. The city still has a harmonious, well-preserved heritage that is evident in the graceful iron verandas, granite balconies, and porticos, mansions, arches connecting the narrow streets, paving slabs smoothed by time, towers, and cloisters.
